Redemption:The Baltimore Ravens´ 2012 Championship Season Landmark News Service
The life of Ethan Aaron Douglas is chronicled as the ten-year-old joins his grandfather for a life on the Chesapeake Bay. With his grandfather as captain of a steamboat traveling between Norfolk, Washington, D.C. and Baltimore, the boy learns quickly about life on the water. From hurricanes to blue crabs, life on the Bay changes quickly. Learning Shakespeare and witnessing a hanging are just part of the life along the river. Ethan Douglas´ life brushes past major events in the United States from slavery to the underground railroad and the days leading up to the civil war. How did those who lived along the Potomac deal with active warfare during the War Between the States? Life was always a war on the water with pirates shooting at each other as well as Maryland and Virginia oyster police. Ethan´s younger brothers and sisters soon join him as they grow older and become entrepreneurs - and as the nation´s capital city grows and changes. From buyboats to newspapers, the lives of the Douglas family become part of the history of the young nation. Oysters were the ´white gold´ of the east while railroads and shipping competed for freight. This book is the first in the series that will tell the story of life in tidewater Chesapeake Bay region from 1850 to 1950. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Paul J. McSorley.

Frank O´Hara was one of the great poets of the twentieth century and, along with such widely acclaimed writers as Denise Levertov, Allen Ginsberg, Robert Creeley, and Gary Snyder, a crucial contributor to what Donald Allen termed the New American Poetry, ´´which, by its vitality alone, became the dominant force in the American poetic tradition.´´ Frank O´Hara was born in Baltimore in 1926 and grew up in New England; from 1951 he lived and worked in New York, both for ´´Art News´´ and for the Museum of Modern Art, where he was an associate curator. O´Hara´s untimely death in 1966 at the age of forty was, in the words of fellow poet John Ashbery, ´´the biggest secret loss to American poetry since John Wheelwright was killed.´´ This collection is a reissue of a volume first published by Grove Press in 1957, and it demonstrates beautifully the flawless rhythm underlying O´Hara´s conviction that to write poetry, indeed to live, ´´you just go on your nerve.´´
